TULSA, Okla. – Freshman Aniekeme Etim had already etched her name in the ORU record books, but made Summit League history as well as she became the first in league history to win both the Newcomer of the Championship and Track Championship MVP Awards. Her historic day is number eight on the 2017-18 #TopORUMoments countdown.
Etim was ORU's first Women's Track Championship MVP recipient since Tamaira Williams won it in 2016 and the first Newcomer of the Championship for ORU since Cornesha Wilkerson in 2010.
Etim finished her freshman campaign as the ORU record holder in the indoor 60-meter dash (7.35), the outdoor 200-meter dash (23.20) and the outdoor 4x100m relay, combining with Kirsten Burnett, Mercy Abire and Kayvon Stubbs to run 45.19 at the Jimmy John's ORU Invitational. She also ran 11.25 with a 3.1 wind in the 100-meter dash at the Summit League Championships.
